Challenging but fair...
I’ve played many courses all over the world... Roman Road is amongst those I’ve enjoyed very much.
winter golf about as good as it gets fairways good greens good wet in rough do not go there
Well balanced course.. terrible pace
Played the course for years as a member and now a vistor. Roman road is a class set up and invariably in top condition. On this occasion the greens were superb. Its biggest problem is the pace of play it generates due to its demand and the average or less than average golfer. Too many times rounds are ruined because of this. No course marshal to help speed things up. Ran out of patients after the 12th.
Celtic Manor Roman Road
You would be hard pressed to find better facilities and the course is fantastically kept , definitely worth a visit .
The friendly staff just add to the experience.
Summer evening golf
Played on the hottest June day since 1976 plus the longest day. The course has an excellent layout and is a fair test of golf for all standards. The greens were superb as was the overall condition of the course. Cannot wait to play the Montgomerie and possibly the Twenty-Ten courses.
Wonderful vision and facilities to match
Booked CM when saw great midweek deal. Went with high expectations and was not disappointed. As you entered the grounds you could taste the class of the place. When you adjust your mentality to meet your environment, you know you're in the midst of somewhere special. The only shock was being advised on arrival that as a 2 ball we would be playing with 2 members. That set the nerves jingling but as it happenned they were unavailable and we had a care-free round in a beautiful but challenging setting. Next time ill come prepared and pay a visit to the driving range prior!
The course was as you would expect at such a location, the only downsides were two four-balls in front of us that were slow and the course was very boggy in many places. The upside was a fantastic spring day with lots of sunshine and little wind. I'm sure our experience would have been quite different in poor weather as it is very exposed to the elements.
The course was in fantastic condition for time of year. Greens were immaculate and a credit the the green keepers. Will defiantly be going back soon
